The Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month!

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly

My Dad, David William Robb, played the bagpipes and was in the Kemptville Legion  pipe band. We NEVER missed an Armistice Day service. This year, a known name was entered, because a member of our Armed Forces was murdered a few weeks back while standing guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Daddy, along with all the other troops, landed in Sicily, went through Europe and ended up in Holland. He along with other musicians stayed behind to play for the wounded troops as they awaited transport home.
We did it; all five cords of wood are piled. Three cords beside the house to be tarped after a few days of wind, and two cords in front of the flower bed close to the steps. Also, I have fixed the entrance to the portable garage.
The squirrels are another story and that chapter hasn't been written. The sonic blaster seemed to be useless, next it is the old chili powder application.  After that it is the old live trap relocation plan. I hate to do this because all their food is here.
Another fun, family friendly challenge with a wholesome sentiment, and ‘of course’ it’s “Anything Goes” as far as styles or projects.
This is our 157th.   Thank you for taking time to post your very  beautiful art with us.  
Congratulations to the winners from last week.  Once again, we had many beautiful entries.
All your cards, tags and projects are extremely beautiful. I find great inspiration when I see your work and it always challenges me.
